Ticket To Ride: First Journey (Europe) is a fun-filled adventure for younger train fans! Once again designed by Alan R. Moon, First Journey tweaks the much-loved Ticket To Ride to accommodate children aged six and up. If you’ve played the regular game, you’ll know what to expect! Players compete to try and build rail route on a map of Europe, linking cities. You’ll need to collect sets of same-coloured train cards to claim routes between cities. If you have the same quantity of matching cards that match a route, you claim it and place down your trains! The big aim is to complete ‘tickets’, which require you to connect two cities across Europe. Ticket To Ride: First Journey (Europe) takes its younger audience into mind with some rule changes. This game isn’t about earning the most points (like the original). Instead, the winner is the first player to complete six tickets. Players start with twenty trains – fewer than in regular Ticket To Ride – so it’s a quicker game (for those with, ahem, shorter attention spans!). Another way someone can win is if they place down all twenty of their trains. If they do, then the player who’s completed the most tickets at that time wins! The routes on this map are between one to three trains in length, so set collection is a little kinder. Also, since there’s no points, players don’t get penalised for not completing tickets. In fact, if both of your tickets get blocked, First Journey allows players to spend their turn swapping the dud tickets for two new ones. The colours on the board pop and there’s cute artwork for each city, which will delight the little ones. Publisher Days of Wonder have done it again! First Journey (Europe) goes to show that there’s a Ticket To Ride game out there for everyone. Player Count: 2-4 Players Time: 15-30 minutes Age: 6+
